This weekend, thousands of rap enthusiasts packed tightly into Times Square's PlayStation Theater for the third annual Steez Day Festival. Up-and-coming rapper JAY IDK kicked off the show, following performances by AB-Soul, Saba, the A$AP Mob, and more. It wasn't until Pro Era came on, though, that the crowd absolutely went off. Among the smoke and sweat of the hyped up crowd, the Pro Era boys and Joey Bada$$ delivered a powerful, energetic set. The Steez Day Festival is thrown annually to honor Capital STEEZ, a late Pro Era member who tragically took his life five years ago. Now, each year Pro Era, as well as their fans, friends and families come together to celebrate the life and legacy of Steez.

VMAN headed up to Times Square and captured some backstage moments from the show. Check out exclusive images below.
